Developed in 1945 as the country’s national carrier, the Ethiopian Airlines (Ethiopian) played a key role in the creation of the largest African airlines network. Tigist Eshetu, Country Manager for Zambia, highlights, Over the past seven decades, Ethiopian has been a pioneer of the African aviation as an aircraft technology leader”. She adds, “As members of the Star Alliance, we operate in partnership with renowned carriers in Africa, Europe, Asia and the Far East, and offer the best connection and smooth transfer to any destination in the world”.

Today, Ethiopian Airlines is the leading and most profitable airline, providing annual transfer of 7.6 million passengers and over 266.000 tonnes of cargo, through a current fleet of 91 aircrafts, realizing revenues of US$2.5 billion in 2016. EAL currently operates to over 55 destinations in Africa including Zambia. Since the establishment of the first flight to Zambia in 1996, the airline has developed connections from Lusaka, offering 10 flights on weekly basis, and daily flights from Ndola. Tigist Eshetu says, “Ethiopian plays a major role in fostering the export activities of Zambia by operating three cargo flights on weekly basis”.

Wide range of aviation services

EAL is not just an airline, it is a complete aviator, an aviation group of seven business units, including International passengers, Regional express, Freighter cargo network, MRO for aircraft maintenance, Aviation Academy, Ground handling and Catering services”, Tigist Eshetu explains. The company cooperates closely with international and corporate clients, including organizations such as African Union, United Nation, Common Market for East and Southern Africa, IGAD and African Development Bank. In addition, the airline provides high quality and competitive services to business and leisure travellers. Tigist Eshetu adds, “Ethiopian Airlines firmly believes in partnerships and joint operations, which is why we have invested outside the country in ASKY and Malawian Airlines, and hope more partnerships to come in the future”.

Gliter MekonnenIts great what you are doing! I am so proud of being Ethiopian....the most crucial thing that should be improved in 2018 should be actively recognizing chidren in the flight as u never say a word by the crew...you never provide toys ...i feel you missed the key part of caring for generation...thank you....please take this very seriously as i know how as i am a pediatrician and man kind...
